A History of Race and White Supremacy in The U.S.


Focusing on the history of race and white supremacy in the U.S., this training will train attendees on the emergence of race as a social construct, the history of racism against indigenous and Black communities during the founding of the U.S, and the emergence of white supremacy as the dominant racial hierarchy in the U.S. This training will lay the historical foundation for the second training.



Each training will begin with a discussion or reflection question, followed by a PowerPoint presentation from Regan Byrd on anti-oppression concepts, intermixed with several group discussion break-out sessions. The goal of these trainings is to equip attendees with core language and concepts that can be used for additional intraoffice discussion and strategic planning around diversity, equity, and inclusion.


  • Participants will have a historical perspective on race as a social construct and the emergence of white supremacy.
  • Participants will have a deeper understanding of the foundational role racism played in U.S. development.
  • Participants will have a broad understanding of how oppression operates within society and be able to name examples.
  • Participants will have examples and a framework for understanding racism and anti-black racism in the U.S.
  • Participants will be able to articulate a model for allyship and common pitfalls of allyship.
  • Participants will be able to envision how to bridge theory and practice in organizational operations.
  • Participants will have a broad understanding of the non-profit industrial complex and solutions.
